Firstly; don't go getting all excited; this book is my newest baby and isn't a giveaway-sorry! What a corker she is though, packed full of Caprara-ness. As the title suggests this book is all about colour and colour is what my crafting is all about. I strongly recommend it for anyone who wants some starting points and direction and who maybe wants to fall in love all over again with good ole-fashioned stitching.
Yesterday was of comic sketch standard 'round here as we had a new sofa delivered by one guy. He'd agreed to collect the old one too, which Simon only mentioned on his way out the door had come through the front window...yes and it came through the top sash which opens slightly wider. I have no idea how Simon thought I was going to manage to lift a sofa through the top art of the window, especially as the old sofa was a four seater and the new one a sturdy leather three seater....especially with the help of an inquisitive two year old. Anyway with the help of a willing Friend who kept Anna out the way with chocolate biscuits and the delivery mans wife who had just come along for the ride we managed it. The jug was my reward- I have been admiring it in the charity shop window for weeks and as they had a half-price sale on china it's finally mine all mine.
Finally the brooch is my nod toward valentines day and will be going on Folksy in just a mo. I love it's silliness and bright colours. I'm also working on an order of brooches for Tamarisk in their summer colours, all pale cotton and chintz, really nice.
